Involved in her people Pola Weiss paints the Mexican people sensitively. As she makes the camera share in her impulsiveness, black/white and colour, sharp and blurred and all kinds of angles succeed each other. Her effusive character is mirrored in the rhythmically melting of synthetic colour patterns that link the scenes.
Sol o Aguila - heads or tails, this side or the other of the centavos. Pola Weiss analyses the sun and the eagle in a series of emblems of the Aztecs.
